Awww, hugs everyone! I could use a hug, too! I was crying last night. I had my total colectomy on June 2nd, complications, repeat surgery on June 9th, a week later, and I still am having complications. One, something is preventing me from releasing my stool at the bottom. And last night, which I have done in the past (with my colon) had a horrible gas pain that felt stuck in my tummy. Instead, all the gas was coming upwards, excessive burping, and I was about
ready to puke! I put the trash bucket by me! Finally, the feeling passed and I was letting gas out the bottom. Now, this morning, I guess I have an urge to go, but I haven't went since yesterday morning. Something is preventing me from having all the bowel movements I should be having with this surgery!
I just don't get it! I thought by now I would be wanting to eat a meal, go to the bathroom, eat a meal, go to the bathroom, and eat a meal, go to the bathroom. I get tired of feeling sick and nauseous!
